Or Semin, which Moore outproduced (!)
Trick against the Pens will be to shut down the center. There is most of the time only one REALLY dangerous forward on the ice at a time so its not impossible we can do it imho. Washington had Ovechkin, Backstrom and sometimes Semin at the same time on the ice making it harder to keep them in check.
Goal scoring will be more problematic vs the Pens however. We will need secondary scoring to work because the Staal line is going to try and shut down Plekanec and Cammalleri.
